What CIBSE and ASHRAE are recommending to protect buildings and occupiers during the Covid-19 outbreak

In CIBSE Journal’s first podcast on Covid19, Alex Smith talks to those responsible for co-ordinating the response to the coronavirus at CIBSE and ASHRAE.

Hywel Davies discusses the guidance available to building operators during the Covid19 outbreak, and considers what services should be running when buildings are mothballed.

While Bill Bahnfleth, chair of the new ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force, explains why industry guidance is recommending an increase in building ventilation, and discusses other ways of mitigating the risks of airborne infection through use of filters and UV.
